There was a log jam of them after 2008 and prices sagged until they were all snatched this summer. We got ours nearly two years ago. After a four month refit
in which we were the first retro transom mod by Norstar, Odyssey has nearly 5,000 nm in two seasons in Alaska
. Amazingly powerful sail plan really increases your range. They are +30 year old boats, so look closely at auxiliaries, and tankage issues.
Steve at Norstar knows the whereabouts of most of them are located and keeps tabs on which ones will be coming on the market. With the shoal keel
(6' draught) they do go nicely onto a trailer
, so don't be leery of the west coast
Good Luck with your search,
